You've had an update that's broken something. I would imagine that Microsoft has either withdrawn it or updated by now.

You can run Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth either with CMD as admin or Windows PowerShell. I would recommend PowerShell personally. This link will give you all the info needed. Once you run the command I would suggest a reboot before trying updates again. Watch the spaces if you type in or simply copy and paste to either CMD or PowerShell.
